Bib 50 again?

Hey all,

The start list is posted. I am bib #50 - again.  There are only 54 racers in the field but that is not to be underestimated. These are 54 of the fastest women in the WORLD!  Racers have to qualify for the sprint race by having good FIS Sprint profiles.  That removes many of the "exotics" (I was informed tonight that that is the proper term) and folks racing for non-traditional ski countries. Anyways, my start time is 10:27:30 for those that are interested. I've heard that some of the "live" coverage isn't live whatsoever but some of you are clever enough to disguise your IP addresses to receive coverage from other countries. I don't even begin to know how that works....

Anyways, thanks for all the support. I'll report back tomorrow after this is all said and done.
Good night,

Holly :)

  2. Hi Holly,

    We are two of your newest fan club memebers, since we have just learned about you during our first day with the Junior Nordic Program on Feb 6th.

    Just wanted to say thanks for sharing your Olympic experience on the blog. It's great to read about the Olympic experience from an athlete's perspective.

    Hoping to see some of your classic race tonight on NBC.
